The shorts are made from cotton pants I got from a clothing swap. I kept the original back pockets, the original zipper fly front and button, and the ties. They aren't chartreuse, but I didn't find any chartreuse pants, and I thought that would be too feminine looking. I feel like this green is in the same color family as chartreuse so it works. The pockets have gray corduroy facing which you can see on Henry's right pocket.
Melly Sews fedora pattern and tutorial. I used linen that I found in the bargain bin. It's so beautiful! I made this hat twice. The first time I made it it was way too small; I somehow printed it off wrong. Luckily, I took a hat-making class in college which helped immensely when making this hat. See my cowboy hat and cloche hat I made. It's lined with vintage zigzag cotton fabric (not pictured, sorry!). It's HUGE on him because I didn't know how to resize it, but he'll be able to wear it for years. He already loves it and wears it whenever we go outside to play.
I didn't make the suspenders for this collection, but it worked so perfectly I had to use them. I have added gray pleather triangle pieces at each clip.
It's a tad short, but hopefully it'll last awhile. How funny is it that every time he rides anything he sticks his tongue out?
The penning farthing stamp looks so great with the suspenders.
